About Public Schools Week
NSBA invites you to join us, the Learning First Alliance (LFA), American Federation of Teachers, National Education Association, National PTA and other supporting education organizations, in celebrating public schools during Public Schools Week, Feb. 22-26, 2021.
Public schools educate nine of every 10 students. The great equalizer for children, they have lifted generations of people out of poverty and from middle to higher income, helping to set young adults on the path to a fulfilling life.
Public Schools Week honors the 50.8 million students, 3.2 million teachers, and hundreds of thousands of specialists, administrators, and support staff working in public schools today.
How to Celebrate
Join us in celebrating by posting on social media that you support public schools or share your public school success story on social media using the hashtags #PublicSchoolProud, #PSW21 or #PublicSchoolsWeek2021.
LFA's social media toolkit includes sample social media posts, images, quotes, and other graphics. You can also download the Public Schools Week 2021 poster for your home, office, school, or classroom.
NSBA 2020-2021 President Charlie Wilson recorded a Public School Proud Podcast with LFA Executive Director, Richard Long. Listen to their conversation on LFA's podcast page.
President Wilson will also join a group of public education champions from leading education organizations for a panel discussion. You can watch the show on LFA’s YouTube channel on Feb. 23 at 2 p.m. EST.
Please mark your calendars and make plans to join us in the celebration.
